Here I discovered THE DANCE OF DEATH.
Now I no longer do without. I buy many books with engravings of Holbein and others. Martin Hagstrom's advice is valuable.
Unable to browse all the pages of the site. Greetings Martin.

Da jeg udforsker den plattyske sprog og da jeg desuden er interesseret i den middelalderske og barokke literatur om døden, er jeres websted en rigtig skat for mig. Jeg vil sige tak for den omfattende og oplysende samling om senmiddelplattyske dødendans. Jeg må undskylde mig for mit dårligt dansk, jeg er (plat)tysk.

Hej!

Jeg har et konkret spørgsmål som jeg skal have svar på hurtigst muligt, da jeg skal til eksamen i morgen.

I den berlinske dødedans har vi paven, hvis død er nøgen - ved du hvorfor?

vh Camille

Hej Camille

Jeg må desværre skuffe dig dobbelt. :-(

For det første tjekker jeg ikke gæstebogen tit nok til at kunne svare fra dag-til-dag. For det andet ved jeg ikke, hvorfor Pavens Død er nøgen (og det er der næppe nogen andre, der ved). Det bedste gæt er, at det er en hån af paven, men det modsiges af, at maleriet menes at være fra ca. 1490 og dermed fra end del år før Reformationen.

I would like to commend Mr. Hagstrom for his superb scholarship. This is the type of scholarly work we seldom see these days. As a collector of edged weapons I have long been fascinated with the Holbein dagger. Mr. Hagstrom's research is the best I have seen on the subject. The skeleton hand pointer was a great touch! Thank you for sharing.

Tysen takk for denne fantastiske internett presentasjonen! Jeg har trengt fotografier fra dødedansen i Lübeck for en universitets oppgave og siden din var veldig hjelpsom!

Hi!

First of all I have to say that your site is just great. I've been looking for Dance of Death information and I found your site very usefull.

I'm very interested in the images you have on the left side. I think they were included in the book "Horae". I was looking for 4 images (La Damoissele, La Balline, La Bourgoise and another one that says something like "Feme aur potecas) (I can't read what it says in the images I have). Do you have them in a bigger size??

Hi Scamper

There are great scans of the book here: la prieure la damoiselle la bourgoyse, la ueusue la marchande la balliue and la bergere femme aux potences la femme de uillage.

Hej, Sikke et godt materiale du har samlet!
Jeg vil rigtig gerne vide svaret på dit eget spørgsmål; citat begynd "Jeg har altid undret mig over udtrykket "at ligne Døden fra Lübeck". Hvad har denne hyggelige juleby, med sit gode øl og hvinende søde marcipan, dog gjort for at lægge navn til dette udtryk ?" - citat slut.
Med venlig hilsen
Maiken

Ja, forklaringen er vel, at maleriet var berømt i hele Nordeuropa og var kendt som "Døden fra Lübeck".

I came to your site for the translation. Thank you so much, it's a great site. I am learning the score of Distler's Totentanz, written in early 40s. You probably know of Hugo Distler, a prolific church musician and composer. Are there other instances of the Totentanz set to music?

Hi Marie

Do I know Distler's Totentanz? Half of my pages carry a banner linking to Totentanz by Crescendo. It's not an ad as such, I've put it there because they are nice people. :-)

Other compositions? Franz Liszt and Camille Saint-Saëns comes to my mind. Have you ever seen "Skeleton Dance" by Disney / Ub Iwerks? Take a look here.

Hello.
Thank you for your very thorough information on the Dances of Death. I am very interested in this subject, and I have a humble collection of prints, and books dedicated to it. While in college, I wrote about a subject that I feel is the precursor to the DOD motif: the "Transi-Tomb." What are your thoughts on this funerary sculpture, and its connection to the Dance of Death?
Thank you again,
Ralph E. Spafford............

Hi Ralph

I can't say I've looked much into this. I'd think the transis are simply a reminder of how "transitive" all flesh is. Of course, there's hardly a dance of death on this planet where Death doesn't tell his dancers that "you'll soon be like me".

In my opinion there's a much stronger influence from the Vado Mori genre and from the story of the three living and the three dead.
